Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Carolyn Gerard, M.A. MFT, Licensed since 1985 Marriage is not easy. Trust, honesty and respect are essential to having a loving and fulfilling relationship. So what are couples to do when those ingredients have been violated? And how can couples talk about disappointments and resentments without them leading to fights? I specialize in working with relationship issues, particularly, Couples in Crisis and Premarital Counseling. As an Emotionally Focused Therapist, I help couples move beyond the stuck helpless feelings they experience, especially after a betrayal or when communication has broken down; to help carve a new path from which they can rebuild the loving and intimate bond they so desire. Licensed since 1985, married over 30 years and raised five children (including twins), I understand the numerous challenges couples face. Contact me today to begin restoring your loving bond. www.GerardCounseling.com, cg@GerardCounseling.com, Facebook.com/GerardCounseling, or call (858) 756-8171

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
